  • Google writes about Energy Efficiency 01.12.2014

    With the days getting shorter and the temperature dropping, it's the perfect season to talk about energy efficiency.

Living rooms are infested with "vampire" electronics that suck power even when turned off; open chimney flues let the "ghosts" of winter steal our heat; and quite often there's a "monster" furnace lurking in the basement. By taking small steps to drive out the goblins of inefficiency, you can save money and ward off carbon emissions. So Google created a handy energy saving calculator and a list of tricks to help you do just that.
